When one considers thermoplastics and paint. One enters a big subject locally and internationally. Big? It has major economic implications and impacts road safety. Essentially, first world countries have thermoplastics and second and third world countries have paint. Wise men say that the richer one is the cheaper certain things become. This is unfortunately true in the case of line markings on the roads. Which is why Safety Direct Egypt - Antislip Egypt have combined the use of thermoplastic paints and Nano lightweight particles to offer super heavy duty Antislip coatings. These textures can range from microscopic up to course textures, depending on uses.
Paint has the singular virtue of being cheap. If one is determined to lower costs and do a job that is OK at the beginning, but it will fail to survive the test of time.
Typically, Thermo Antislip Paint consists of:
Thermoplastics have: Hydrocarbons, rosin esters and maleic modified rosin esters. In addition: Fillers, plasticers and binder resins. In a warm climate thermoplastic can be expected to last two to six years. Money considerations permitting the thermoplastics or paint question is always in favour of thermoplastic. We have barely scratched the surface and the thermoplastic and paint questions goes on and on.
